Washington (CNN) – Add a stop in South Carolina this weekend to Rep. Mike Pence’s schedule.
This, as speculation grows over whether the Republican from Indiana will make a bid for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination, or whether he’ll run for governor in his home state.
Pence spokesman Matt Lloyd confirms to CNN that the congressman, who’s entering his sixth term in the House, will keynote the Awakening Conference’s dinner at a resort on Kiawah Island in South Carolina on Saturday. The conference is an invite-only gathering of top conservatives that was originally conceived up to serve as a conservative alternative to the more progressive Reinaissance Weekend. Pence’s attendance at the conference was first reported by Politico.
